Police Are Using Twitter to Solve 45-Year-Old Cold Case

This is definitely one use for social media that I've never seen before...

Police in California used their Twitter account for Linda O'Keefe. Here's the catch-- Linda passed away in 1973. Linda was just 11-years-old at the time. She went missing while walking home from school; the next day, her body was found.

The cold case has baffled detectives for decades. For two days, they used their official Twitter account for Linda, where they sent out tweets as if they were her, narrating her final moments on Earth. Their hope is that the tweets may trigger someone's memory, who could provide police with a clue to help solve this tragic case.
